Falcarragh residents are being advised that water will be off tomorrow, Tuesday, to facilitate the connection of a new water main.
Works are continuing to replace ageing water mains in Falcarragh and progressing as scheduled, according to Irish Water.
There will be a planned water outage on Tuesday, 10 December from 10am – 5pm for the next step of the project. There will be no planned interruptions of this scale again until the New Year, an Irish Water spokesperson said.
Homes and businesses in the affected areas may be impacted by water outages and reduced water pressure tomorrow. Following these improvement works, water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network.
The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customers’ water supply.
The overall project involves the decommissioning and replacement of approximately 1.6 kilometres of problematic water mains in Falcarragh, along the Ballintemple Lower with high density polyethylene (plastic) ones.
The Falcarragh upgrade scheme is being carried out on behalf of Irish Water by Farran’s Construction Ltd and is expected to be completed in January 2020.
